It’s on, y’all. Per ESPN’s Ian Begley, the Knicks have waived point guard Ramon Sessions to make room to sign G League guard Trey Burke.

Sessions averaged 3.7 points (on a hardly robust 32.1% shooting) and 2.1 assists in 13 games this season. He started the first three games of the 2017-18 season, but the Knicks’ offense struggled mightily, especially with turnovers, and he was benched in favor of current starter Jarrett Jack. Sessions was on a guaranteed deal, so the remainder of his $2,328,652 salary will stay on the Knicks’ salary cap.

General manager Steve Mills provided Sessions with a send-off statement:

”We thank Ramon for being a consummate professional and providing this team with veteran leadership. He is incredibly well respected throughout the organization and we wish him the best moving forward.”

As for Burke, he has been averaging 26.6 points per game on 49% shooting for the Westchester Knicks. Apparently he will sign his deal with the ‘Bockers on Sunday.
